It’s now been a while that you have been using Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify or either you have just started using it, the new Feature App is beneficial to both the type of users.
With the new “Create an App for your Seller” feature app, you will be able to add the Sellers Product from their Shopify Store at run time. That is if your Sellers too have their Shopify Stores and wanted the products from their respective stores to be added to the Admins Shopify Store then this can be achieved through this featured app.
The Feature App is at monthly pricing of 40$ USD per month. This charge is beyond the monthly charge of the multivendor app.
Let’s understand this in more detail.
These are the features that will be added to the App :
- Sellers can sync their Shopify Store Products to the Store Owner/Admin Shopify Store
- The Sellers Shopify Store inventory is synced to the Admin Shopify Store
- Admin needs to create a Shopify App and the same is to be installed at the Seller Shopify Store
- Admin can charge monthly fees from the Sellers for the new sync app if they use it.
- All the Seller Product Order at the Admin Store are synced to the Seller Shopify Store and the inventory is reduced at both ends.
Feature App Installation
You need to enable the featured app from the app configuration menu. Once you have enabled the app, please do approve the changes in the payment.
Approve the charges in the app and at the Shopify Store too.
Once the app is enabled you will now have a new menu added to the app “Seller Supported App Configuration” in the app.
App Creation for the seller by admin
Admin/Store Owner needs to create a Shopify App for the seller that the seller will install at their respective Shopify Stores.
There are 2 ways by which the admin can create an app for the seller :
1- Admin can contact us and we will create an app for you. Then we will provide the necessary details.
2- Admin can create the app on his own. Let’s see how this can be done.
To create an app on your own, you need to have a “Partner Account” with Shopify. Open the Shopify Store Backend, then from there go to “Create App”.
In the above image, you can mention the App Name as per your requirement, but the App Url must be the same as provided in the “Seller Supported App Configuration” menu in the app.
Once this is done, you need to open the app and then in “App Info” tab, mention the App Url and the Whitelisted redirection URL(s) as provided in the “Seller Supported App Configuration” menu in the app.
You can even mention the “Trail Days” and the “App Price” (if any) you want to charge from the seller.
Once all the above is done. You need to mention the API key and the Secret Key as shown in the above screenshot, you can get this from the newly created app page, under the page info tab :
Copy the details and write it in the “Seller Supported App Configuration” page and then save the settings.
This way admin creates the app and mentions the same in the Multivendor App too.
Once the admin is done with the app creation process at the Shopify Store then it needs to be approved by the Shopify Team only then it can be used by the Seller, but till the time the app gets approved you can provide the link to the seller as we have provided here :
And in case you have asked us to create an app for you then we will provide the API key and the Secret Key.
NOTE: Please perform all the steps as mentioned in the “note” section on the “Seller Supported App Configuration” page.
We have also provided an option where the admin can select the seller products and can disable them to be published on his own store.
Admin will either provide the Shopify link (once the app is approved by the Shopify Team) to the Seller
Can provide the “Seller App Installation App Url” that we have provided in the Multivendor App.
Now once the seller has the URL, then needs to install the app to get the sync started to the admin Shopify Store.
Seller will install the new app this way from the landing page :
Seller needs to approve the monthly charges if any for the app as set by the Admin and will now have the new app “webkul-marketplace” in the “apps” menu in the Shopify Store.
Now the Seller can start using the App.
Once the Seller adds the Product then the same gets synced to the Admin Shopify Store at the Run-time, ie. as soon as they are added.
When the Products are synced then the Order for the same will be created at the Seller Shopify Store if the Order is placed from the Admin Shopify Store and the inventory gets reduced at both the ends.
Also when the Order is placed for the same Product at the Seller Shopify Store then the inventory is synced to the Admin Shopify Store also.
We have added an option for the sellers to select from the products, which are to be synced to the Admin Store.
